What is Zoom! teeth whitening?
Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.
What can cause tooth discoloration?
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, or tobacco. During tooth formation and consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth dicoloration.
Is teeth whitening becoming more popular?
Absolutely! A bright and beautiful smile can make a big difference. The Zoom! Whitening system makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening as the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
Do the results last a long time?
By following some simple post-whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily with Zoom! Whitening toothpaste, and touch-ups with Zoom! take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth the brightest. They are available through our office.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Zoom?
Yes! Consulting Dr. Baysa is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels, and toothpaste take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades* in one hour.
**These results are typical but not guaranteed; individual results will vary.
How does the Zoom! in-office system works?
The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
Is the Zoom! in-office procedure painful?
No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music. Many fall asleep.
Are there any side effects?
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
How long is the procedure
The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by an hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).
